Doll Craft- Sparkly Party Plates

Happy New Year!  Julie and Saige rang in the New Year with a little party.  Saige found the perfect masquerade mask to wear and Julie brought out sparkly party plates for the occasion!

These little plates are really going to add pizzaz to the party table!

They sparkle with festive fun!

Do you know what makes them a little more fun?  Mixing up two or more glitters together for a unique colorful sparkle!  Let’s take a look!  


  • Mod Podge
  • canning lids (It’s optional to paint them a solid color.  A little color will peek through the glitter.  Mine are painted white.)
  • glitter (The tall Darice glitter is from Consumer Crafts.  The small glitter is from my stash! ) 
  • foam craft brush

Choose 2 or more glitters.  For my first plate I am using a combo of red, orange and yellow. 

 Combine the colors.

 Lay down a piece of paper to work on.  Paint a layer of Mod Podge onto a canning lid.

Sprinkle on your glitter mix.  Gently turn over the canning lid and pour off the excess.  If there are any areas that need more glitter, add a dab of Mod Podge and sprinkle on more glitter.  Allow to dry completely.  Add a layer of Mod Podge as a top coat if desired.  

Pour the extra glitter from the piece of paper into a small baggie to reuse or save!   

As a variation I made another party plate in a different color combo.  

The different colors add depth to the shimmer and shine!

 They are great serving plates on the party table!   

 With just enough shimmer and shine to ring in the New Year!

Just in case you are interested, here is a little more about today’s post:

  • Dolls: Saige is AG GOTY 2013, Julie is an AG Historical Character
  • Outfits: The mask is a Christmas ornament.  Both dresses are designed and made by Anna.

Now go craft in the New Year!

*Thanks to Consumer Crafts for sending me the fabulous glitter.  I have always enjoyed a little sparkle in my life! :)  As always, all opinions are my own!

    That mask is epic! I love using ornaments for dolls. Where did you get it?

  10. Anna says:

    Hannah, Thanks! The mask was from Pier One!

  11. Anna says:

    Rebecca, I make my own…the red dress is made similar to this one……only I did something a little different with the sleeves and bodice. I’m planning on posting pictures and a description sometime soon.

    The blue dress is a new pattern I made recently and I will eventually have it available on my blog as well! Hope that helps!

  12. I wish I had been able to see that before the New Year! I celebrated the New Year with a LOUD party including entertainment as me honking an air horn. I also celebrated with stuffed animals and dolls. =)
